Job Announcements

United Cerebral Palsy of Southern Arizona (UCPSA) is a premier provider of in-home services to people with all types of disabilities and offers support to their families. Direct Care Workers and Habilitation Providers (DCWs) are often the connection between our consumers and their independence. Because of the special role DCWs play, consumers are able to live in their own home or with their families rather than in a nursing facility or group setting. The services provided by DCWs allow consumers to maintain their independence. The DCWs carry out the mission of UCPSA for our consumers and their families and play a vital role in the success of the agency.
